"—oh baby *hugs to death* it was different, it wasn’t how i usually perceived jongyu to be. and i liked that. but i feel the base was still the same, because i’ve always thought their relationship to be soft, something that simple words don’t convey."
man, i totally get that! i guess it wasn’t conventional jongyu at all, and i understand, i guess—but jeesh, she’s just going at it and i’m like “uhm okay what do you want me to do :|” thank you, though, very much.
LMAO JFC IDEK ANYMORE. WHAT I DO KNOW IS THAT I ACTUALLY LIKE WHAT I WROTE FOR ONCE AND I SHALL NOT LET ANYONE SPOIL THAT FOR ME!!!
"—that’s what i love most about reading (good) fanfiction! i find different facets of personalities i already know, and it manipulates and shifts and stretches my understanding of them further."
pretty much my thoughts as well! in a way, i guess i don’t entirely enjoy a fic that’s TOO faithful to reality, it’s just…flavorless? totally my opinion, though, lol.
one of my readers of ash dawn, though, she’s hell-bent on her conviction that i characterized jonghyun “incorrectly.” well, what can i say, if that’s what she thinks, but it really is rather putting-off and somewhat offensive the way she words her comment.
"—characterization is relative, though :\ how everyone depicts SHINee’s “true” personality is different, and especially when it comes to writing, how the author characterizes a character is up to the author…but honestly, that’s just me. >__>"
this is pretty much my mentality. i totally would understand if people came up to me and said, ‘vee, why the fuck did you make minho act like a total douchebag and drop taemin on his ass without explanation, that’s too out-of-character.”
but otherwise? if they don’t have like a solid example why my characterization is apparently “wrong,” then what do i say lmao? it’s how i feel my characters should act.
you know, as an author, i wholly welcome concrit, and i in fact get it a lot from two different friends that are both named lucy, one of which is an english major, the other of which is in public relations,
but if you’re going to tell me one of my fics ‘should have been minkey because jongyu is wrong for the chracterization,’
how in the name of jonghyun’s hairy legs do you expect me to respond.
